    PaNOSC will build on top of the existing local meta-data catalogues and data repositories to provide federated services for making data easily Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable (FAIR). Extracting the scientific value of the experimental data produced in our RIs is not always an easy task. The raw data tends to be larger and larger and quite often required special skills for being correctly exploited. PaNOSC will develop and provide data analysis services to overcome these difficulties. The services will include notebook (Jupyter based), remote desktop applications and containers or VMs. These services will be provided locally by the RIs for their users (especially when they are on site or when the volume of data is too huge to be exported), the same services should also be available on the EOSC for general use. The data analysis services will offer in a single user experience the data, the software, the IT capacity and the necessary scientific support. All these services should be fully integrated into the EOSC catalogue, in terms of discovery, accessibility, and user authentication/authorisation, SLA, accounting etc. The PaNOSC cluster will also help introduce a new data culture to the user community – via training at each site and workshops on scientific data management and publishing practices. Best practices in data stewardship will be shared with other laboratories within the PaN community and other clusters. Experiences, trials and results will be shared openly via publications and meetings. The positive experience of implementing an Open Data policy and connecting data and services to the EOSC will help convince other PaN institutes still struggling with adopting the FAIR principles.

    ERA_SHUTLLE is creating a cross-sectoral framework for collaboration and possibilities for talents from different backgrounds to address contemporary health and environmental challenges and produce innovative solutions for the benefit of society. The ERA_SHUTTLE's main goal is to foster R&I capacity in the ERA to benefit the participating widening countries Poland, Croatia, and Malta. This will be accomplished by bolstering R&I support capacities, boosting cross-sectoral collaboration, and implementing cross-sectoral knowledge valorisation and talent circulation experiments while boosting the attractiveness of regional R&I ecosystems. This action is designed by leading research universities from widening countries with underdeveloped RI landscapes and strong non-academic institutions and associations from non-widening countries such as Steinbeis, CERIC-ERIC and ASTP. The ERA_SHUTTLE brings universities, non-academic, and private organisations together to eliminate existing barriers and work toward a common objective by offering training and secondment opportunities that celebrate diversity. Project partners will develop their core capacities and benefit from ERA knowledge and expertise exchange. The project supports industry-research needs by cross-fertilizing ideas to address hurdles and low levels of research valorisation. Following the European Industrial Strategy and the European Skills Agenda, ERA_SHUTTLE will help R&I talents from Widening countries deepen their capacity and broaden their skill set to improve research, knowledge valorisation, and cross-sectoral collaboration. Through specific objectives, project will: identify research institutions' strengths and weaknesses and increase access, integration, and use of research equipment and knowledge, improve research conditions, employability, and career possibilities to attract and retain top research and innovation talent in expanding countries and implement cross-sectoral talent mobilities.

    CERIC-ERIC (CERIC) is a distributed research infrastructure for fundamental and applied research on novel materials and biomaterials. The RI has been in operation for 2 years and provides open access to a broad range of instruments and expertise across research communities, in order to support the research community world-wide in tackling the most challenging problems of materials research. The ACCELERATE project is proposed to support CERIC sustainability through activities of collaborative development of policies with other research infrastructures (RIs), in particular new and forming ERIC entities. ACCELERATE will assist sustainability, relevance and effectiveness of the RI through preparation of frameworks for services to private and public entities, outreach to new scientific and industrial networks and geographical areas and a methodology for RI social impact assessment. Together with the RI partners CERIC will also carry out several intense courses for development of future RI managerial, IL and TT staff. The project will be carried out while maintaining vigorous communication with research and industrial communities, policy makers, EC administration and other RI stakeholders.

    Photovoltaics is a major pillar in tackling climate change, one of the biggest current threats to humankind. Organic photovoltaics (OPV) could significantly contribute to this, as organic solar cells can be manufactured in efficient and low-cost roll-to-roll processes and are already reaching power conversion efficiencies above 19%. However, in order to have a large impact, the long-term stability OPV has to be improved to obtain lifetimes of many years. Therefore, OPVStability aims to develop (i) an in-depth understanding of the degradation mechanisms and stability-promoting factors of organic photovoltaic materials and solar cells, (ii) tools to predict the lifetime of organic solar cells and to identify stable structural motifs as well as device architectures and (iii) innovative strategies to significantly enhance the stability of efficient OPV of the next generation. OPVStability combines partners from academia and industry with a strong background in OPV and/or specialized scientific methods including theoretical calculations and simulations, experimental degradation studies on single materials, materials combinations and interfaces, accelerated aging and outdoor stability measurements, advanced synchrotron-based analytics, high-throughput experiments and machine learning approaches. Within OPVStability, ten PhD-students work on this timely and interdisciplinary research project accompanied with an excellent training program comprising scientific skills as well as a comprehensive set of soft and transferable skills.

    O.S.C.A.R.S. - Open Science Clusters’ Action for Research and Society The OSCARS project brings together ESFRI and other world-class research infrastructures organised in five "Science Clusters", ENVRI-FAIR (environmental science), EOSC-Life (life science), ESCAPE (astronomy and particle physics), PaNOSC (neutron and light source science) and SSHOC (social science and humanities) that have cooperated over the last four years to rise the efficiency and productivity of researchers by providing open data services and infrastructures for discovering, accessing, and reusing data. The proposed OSCARS project aims at combining individual cluster-based key activities and new shared strategic pathways towards two major objectives: (A) consolidating achievements from the five H2020 INFRA-EOSC-2018-01-04 projects into lasting interdisciplinary services and working practices; (B) leading and fostering the involvement of a broad range of research communities in EOSC via the development of new open science projects, that together will drive the uptake of FAIR-data-intensive research throughout the European Research Area (ERA).
